NYC Usability Professionals Association presents:
Beyond Usability: It's Not Just the Interface

The presentation will cover how offline work impacts technology, interplays
with client dynamics and informs online usability issues. You will find out
why you can't just look at online usability, but also must consider whether
your work has improved upon the off-line lives of users. The presentation
will cover methods and solutions and case studies of well-known clients.

Following the presentation, there will be time allotted for a lively Q & A.
